Bronx NY Podiatrist Employs New Saorsa Swift Wart Removal Machine for Plantar Warts Treatment
Bronx Foot Care, a podiatry practice in The Bronx, NY, wants to point out that they are using a new Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine for the treatment of plantar warts. The Swift microwave therapy machine provides a fast and convenient way to eliminate plantar warts with only slight pain and discomfort for the patient. It works through the application of microwave energy to the affected tissue for the purpose of increasing its temperature rapidly, which will then activate the natural immune response to work on getting rid of the warts.

Plantar warts, just like any other kind of warts, are not a major health issue. However, they can cause a lot of pain and discomfort for the patient, especially since they are located on the soles of the feet. Thus, having pressure exerted on them can’t be avoided, especially when the person is walking, running, standing, or engaged in other activities that put pressure on the soles of the feet. Furthermore, plantar warts tend to form root-like extensions deep inside the tissue, which make them very difficult to treat with topical solutions.
The Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine has an applicator that is shaped like a wand or pen that makes it easy for the clinician to direct the microwaves toward the affected tissue precisely. This means the clinician can accurately avoid healthy tissue from being exposed to the microwave energy. Furthermore, the Swift device has been designed to make sure that the microwaves will only travel in straight lines and will have no lateral spread, unlike with cryotherapy.
In addition, the applicator has a disposable tip that has to be replaced with a new one for every new treatment session. Since warts are contagious, this will help prevent cross-contamination. The Swift microwave machine is even provided with a sensor that prevents it from operating if the disposable tip has not been replaced with a new one.
For those who are wondering about the safety of using the Swift microwave machine, it has already been approved by the FDA for use in the United States. They also want to point out that only a small dosage of microwave energy is applied to the plantar warts. Nevertheless, the microwave machine might not be recommended for certain patients. These include those who: are wearing a pacemaker; are pregnant or breastfeeding; are suffering from poor circulation; have metal plates or pins in their feet; or are immune-suppressed.
Meanwhile, it is also important to note that microwaves have already been used in medical applications for over three decades, especially for the treatment of certain types of cancer. In addition, treatment with the Swift microwave therapy machine means there is only minor post-procedural pain and because it doesn’t cause any cuts to the skin, unlike other treatments, it doesn’t require any bandages or dressings, which means the patient can immediately get back to whatever they were engaged in before the treatment.
